at the beginning of the show is happening. and i think the nra has -- and i guess rachel maddow made this point the other night. the nra, it has been so long that they have had to argue this issue that they're kind of shocked at how much support, once this issue is framed the way it is now, which is let's take some reasonable steps to prevent something like newtown from happening again. a lot of people including gun owners are on that side. >> right, and i think the freakouts helped to make the point from the other side. when you see somebody speaking straight to camera saying if i don't get what i want i will start to kill people. your first reaction is whoa, i wouldn't want that person to have a gun. it is like they went so far to make a point that they made the other point. >> that is why i wanted to show people, when you have freakouts you usually look freaky in doing that. >> it is a good rule. >> they said in december that schools should deploy armed officers, listen to this, both of you. >> the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. we need to have every sin

that the nra and their people keep using obama as this selling tool. they keep putting him in magazines and acting like he wants to take away your guns so you have to buy as many guns as possible. he's only, to this point, been a friend to the nra and expanded where we can carry guns. but these have been the best-selling tool that they've ever had. >> if you look at if nra, they sent out a fund raising letter right after this started saying -- and i'm quoting from the letter, nra fund-raising letter today about president obama's supposed real goal on gun control. the letter says the main goal of the gun banners in congress is not to make school safer, but to ban your guns. and, david, they come with this, well, we need to have our guns in case the government comes in to take -- first of all, if the government came in to take our guns, do you think they're going to knock on the door and try to take it with an automatic weapon for automatic weapon? it would certainly be a lot more ammunition than an automatic weapon couldn't fight the government. so it's absurd on his face. >> you really

carthy and i have been talking to number of nra democrats as well as our colleagues across the aisle. and we're finding no one signed on yet, but we're finding a new willingness of those folks to work with us and to talk to us. >> what about the nra? will republicans be reluctant to fight against the wishes of the nra? or has the nr aerks's influence waned? >> no, the nra is still, i think, the most powerful lobbying group in washington. so what has to happen now is the moms and dads of america have to contact their representatives and senators and they have to say, "where do you stand? what are you going to do about the bigger picture? what are you going to do in specific to keep these assault magazines out of the hands of crazy people and criminals." >> your projection at this point is you think it's more hopeful than it was when you first introduced the bill? is that your prediction or your count at this time? >> i absolutely think that it's more hopeful, the president coming out and saying we need to do something about this. public opinion for banning these magazines, now over 60%. even

the washington talk and all of the nra propaganda and that's what made the president's comments on gun control so important today. at a news conference, he announced he was meeting with vice president biden to discuss his proposals and said by the end of this week, he will announce his plans to the american people. >> my starting point is not to worry about the politics. my starting point is to focus on what makes sense. what works. what shouldn we be doing to mak sure that our children are safe and that we're reducing the incidence of gun violence. if there's a stem thp that we c take that will save even one child, we should take that step. >> we should take that step. and, already, steps are being made. today, the mayor's group released an ad. new york governor andrew quomo is on the verge of sweeping legislation at the state level. and maryland governor is pushing for legislation of his own. change is happening. change will happen. and no one, not the nra, not gun lobbyists, no one should substantial doubt in the way. >> those who oppose any common sense gun control or gun safety measures h

bill? is that immigration? can he keep this laser focus on. because you know the nra and its allies are going to be rallying their forces at every turn here. they are going to keep up their intensity. going to be another absurd situation of the nra fresh from making an ad going after the president's children is now going to -- wayne lapierre is going to appear on the hill and come out against simple background checks. >> against simple background checks. it doesn't get any crazier than that. dana milbank, thanks for your time tonight. >> thanks, reverend. >>> coming up, threats to the president's second term agenda. and what can -- what you can do. that can be helpful. >>> plus hillary clinton dancing right into history. that's next. ♪ [ male announcer ] wouldn't it be cool if we took the already great sentra apart and completely reimagined it with best-in-class combined mpg and more interior room than corolla and civic and a technology suite with bluetooth, navigation, and other handy stuff? yeah, that would be cool. introducing the all-new nissan sentra. it's our most innovative

in the nra. that helps, too. >> but dr. peterson, the president did say this on "meet the press". look at this. >> here's the bottom line. we're not going to get this done unless the american people decide it's important. so this is not going to be simply a matter of me spending political capital. with public opinion, there's nothing we can't do. without public opinion, there's very little you can get done in this town. >> that's soto ryan's point. i've been saying all through the holiday weekend to a lot of my fellow activists, that we're seeing newtown come down in terms of public out rage. and that's not good. how do we have to rile people back up to deal with the fact that we just bared 27 people, for no reason other than a person mentally challenged could get automatic weapons. >> i think there's a couple things that we have to consider here, rev. number one, i believe that those activists in inner cities who have been dealing with the proliferation of guns and the secondary sale of illegal guns, in places like chicago, newark, camden, new orleans and philadelphia have to partner

newtown, then that unearths to the nra's benefit. what appears in the vice president's commission appears to be doing is looking at ways to mobilize the anger and frustration about what happened in newtown. >> let me ask you this quickly. i asked you earlier, the washington post, your paper's report, says that president obama wouldn't have to get congressional approval for some of the measures. "possibilities include changes in federal mental health programs and modernization of gun trafficking efforts by the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, firearms and explosives. >> right. and so, you know, again, these are recommend daxs that we're hearing about from a commission that isn't exactly holding public hearings. i think what we need to do is wait and see what they propose. and then, also, how they propose the president is able to do these things. i think the question will be how? what's the legal basis for the president to do the sings that they say they can do on his own. >> well, we'll be watching. jonathan, thank you so much for your time tonight. >> thanks, rev. >> coming up, hillary clinton
